For KEEPS Program

Saint Peter’s University Hospital's For KEEPS program (Kids Embraced and Empowered through Psychological Services) is a short-term acute partial-hospitalization state-of-the-art unit. This program is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services. Established in 2002, the For KEEPS program has been lauded as a model for children’s partial hospital programs statewide.
