The TCS Philippines Health Centre – COVID Quarantine Facility is located at Quezon City and, with support from Healthway, will serve as a 24/7 offsite medical facility for TCS associates for the next three months with complete medical services in accordance with the guidelines of the Department of Health.

 Committed to nourishing and improving quality of life for its employees and the community, TCS continues to support both its clients and employees throughout the pandemic.

We strongly believe that our employees are the company’s biggest assets, and their health and safety are our highest priority. We want to assure everyone that TCS will always stepup to care for our people during these trying times.”
