Branch Funeral Homes Receive NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award 8th Year In A Row
August, Branch Funeral Homes, Smithtown & Miller Pace, was awarded the 2013 National Funeral Directors Association’s (NFDA) Pursuit of Excellence Award. This is the funeral home’s 8th award in their more than 100 year history.
NFDA's Pursuit of Excellence program recognizes funeral homes that are committed to providing outstanding funeral and cremation service to the families and communities they serve and are dedicated to achieving the highest professional and ethical standards.
The Award is presented annually to firms that have shown their commitment to raising the bar on funeral service excellence by adhering to strict ethical and professional standards and providing outstanding service to families and communities.
“Only two percent of funeral homes nationwide can say they are Pursuit of Excellence award winners and we’ve been doing it for 8 years,” said John Vigliante, an owner and funeral director at Branch Funeral Homes. “It is an honor to be recognized for the investment we make each year in money and time training our staff, upgrading our equipment and expanding our services. We would make these enhancements each year regardless of the award, but it is a distinction that separates us from other funeral service providers on Long Island.”
NFDA is the world's leading and largest funeral service association, serving 19,700 individual members who represent more than 10,000 funeral homes in the United States and 39 countries around the world. Visit www.nfda.org for more information.
