SAN FRANCISCO, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Lombard Investments, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of 18% of Professional Services, Inc. ("PSI" or the "Company"), owner and operator of The Medical City, a leading, private tertiary-care hospital in the Philippines. Its facilities include a 500 bed hospital complex (soon to be expanded to 750 beds) and 280 medical clinics.
