A patient-focused pharmacy.
Gatti Pharmacy has been serving the Indiana, Pennsylvania area since 1936. The store was started by Louis Gatti at a location between the 6th and 7th blocks of Philadelphia Street. During the early 1940's, the pharmacy moved to a new location in the 800 block of Philadelphia Street before a new store was built in 1955 at 832 Philadelphia Street. Louis Gatti passed away in 1970, leaving his son William Gatti to take over the business. Bill then built a new pharmacy at 840 Philadelphia Street in 1974. A Wayne Avenue location of Gatti Pharmacy was opened in the 119 Professional Center. In 1999, Bill sold the pharmacy to David M. Smith.
In 2005, Dave's daughter Stephanie Smith Cooney became a partner in the business. In December 2010, Smith Cooney became the president and sole owner of Gatti Pharmacy and Gift Shop. She is the first female executive and owner in the history of the company.
Stephanie Smith Cooney, Pharm.D., owner and managing pharmacist, is a native of Indiana and a 2004 doctorate of pharmacy graduate of Wilkes University. She has special interests in improving her patient's health through medication therapy management and adult immunizations. Stephanie was the first pharmacist in Indiana to begin providing adult vaccines and continues to enjoy this area of her practice.
She is an active member of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association, the National Community Pharmacists Association. By her association involvement, she aims to stay current in the practice of pharmacy so she can continue to bring cutting-edge products and services to Gatti Pharmacy. She also serves as management preceptor for the community pharmacy residency program in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy. She enjoys working with pharmacy fellows, residents, and students in many capacities to impact the future of pharmacy. Stephanie was honored to be selected as one of the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association’s Ten Under Ten top pharmacists in 2014 and the inaugural recipient of the Pauline Montgomery Leadership Award in 2015.
Growing up in a pharmacist family, Stephanie always wanted to be a pharmacist. During pharmacy school, she developed an interest in the business aspects of community pharmacy in addition to her love of patient interaction. She is proud to be part of a family-owned community business that has been committed to downtown Indiana since it's inception. As the owner, she is dedicated to ensuring Gatti Pharmacy remains a vital part of Indiana for many years to come!

Partnership with the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy
Gatti Pharmacy serves as a practice site for post graduate pharmacy residents at the University of Pittsburgh. Our pharmacy resident each year spends 2-3 days a week with Gatti Pharmacy. Their focus is helping to advance patient care, learn how to effectively manage a pharmacy, initiate community outreach, grow in leadership, and grow in communication skills. The resident spends the other days of the week teaching at the University of Pittsburgh, providing direct patient care in physician offices, and working on a research project.
