Orthopaedic Hospital Medical Magnet High School

About the Project

The $17.1 million, 87,844 SF, Orthopaedic Hospital Medical Magnet High School is located in Los Angeles, California. Students from the entire district who have an interest in the medical and science fields can apply for enrollment in the school. The high school has a capacity of 800 students and is located on donated property adjacent to the Orthopedic Hospital.


Hensel Phelps Development completed the development and construction of the new Orthopedic Hospital Medical Magnet High School for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The project was awarded under a new 17406 contracting approach by LAUSD, where Hensel Phelps Development was responsible for providing construction financing for the project, and, upon completion, selling the project back to LAUSD. This project demonstrated Hensel Phelps Development’s strengths and expertise in the areas of development, project financing, P3 (Public Private Partnerships), and project management/owner’s representation.


This magnet high school is made up of two 2-story buildings. The buildings are constructed about 250 feet apart from each other with covered canopies and a covered lunch shelter constructed between the buildings. The basketball and volleyball courts are also located between the buildings. The project includes a large multi-purpose room, cafeteria, media center, bookstore, administration offices, weight room, and 32 classrooms.
