Funeral Home Receives Award
Garden City Funeral Home and Crematory is a proud recipient of the National Funeral Director’s Association Pursuit of Excellence Award.
The Pursuit of Excellence is NFDA's premier program for honoring excellence and unshakable ethical standards in funeral service. Recipient firms are provided high-profile, national recognition for their outstanding service, professional integrity and dynamic public relations programs. The funeral homes were awarded at the annual National Funeral Director’s Association Pursuit of Excellence Awards during the NFDA Convention and Expo.
“The Pursuit of Excellence program is the premier standard for funeral service excellence. Funeral homes that achieve this special recognition are raising the bar when it comes to community involvement and providing families with quality care,” said NFDA Chief Executive Officer, Christine Pepper.
To achieve recognition in the Pursuit of Excellence Program, a funeral home must meet at least 31 criteria in nine categories of achievement. The categories include: education, compassionate service, technical skills, community and professional service, library or media resources, professional development, in-house staff training, and public and community relations.
Garden City Funeral Home and Crematory was the only firm in the state of Montana to receive this distinguished award in 2006.
