Dr. Jorge Moll Neto: Brilliant Surgeon and Entrepreneur

Dr. Jorge Moll Neto is a Brazilian heart surgeon and entrepreneur. He is the founder of D’Or Hospital Network and president of D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching. Established in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, D’Or Hospital Network has expanded to 32 hospitals around the country.


In a recent medical symposium, Jorge Moll highlighted some milestones for the hospital network. He traced the origins of D’Or Hospital Network to the poor quality public health services in Brazil. According to Jorge Moll, his solution to poor services was the establishment of a network of hospitals in Rio de Janeiro. The D’Or Hospital Network faced many hurdles including cash flow limitations and debt servicing. Also, the health network experienced a reduction in patient numbers arising from the Brazilian financial crisis. During the crisis, a lot of people abandoned the hospital network for public health service or other health providers.


To overcome these obstacles, Jorge Moll introduced what he referred to as “Total Health Management Model.” This model sought to provide quality and affordable health care using qualified professionals and technology. The model will ensure proper patient management from the casualty, through treatment to discharge.


Moreover, Jorge Moll reiterated the hospital network’s commitment to quality which has seen some of their hospitals receiving international recognition. One of the flagship hospitals under the system is the luxurious Star Cup hospital in Copacabana (idor.org). This hospital used 400 million Reais to set up and employs over 600 medical professionals. The Copa Star’s interior décor garnished with woody tones, and a citrus touch ensures that the smell of ether, associated with hospitals is non-existent. Also, the Copa Star is designed to make use of natural illumination which emits a welcoming aura of tranquility.


Jorge Moll studied medical science at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He attained his Ph.D (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jorge_Moll2). in 2004 from Sao Paul University after completing his Neurology therapeutic residence. Jorge Moll has immensely contributed to the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit where he heads. One of the Moll research is the foundation of the affinitive emotions and altruism. He discovered that involving yourself in charity work has the same effect as engaging in a pleasurable activity.
