De Pere, WI - Rennes Health & Rehab Center and The Renaissance in De Pere hosted a groundbreaking event on Monday, July 24 to mark the beginning of construction for a variety of additions and improvements to facilities. The overall project was planned to increase the offered services and improve resident experiences at Rennes Health & Rehab Center, 200 S. Ninth Street, De Pere, WI.
Additions to the campus include a new, 24-unit, 21,000 sq. ft. memory care and assisted living CBRF expansion, a five-unit RCAC expansion to the Renaissance, with an additional 9,500 sq. ft. of new common space, and a 4,050 sq. ft. skilled nursing therapy expansion. Other improvements to the campus include several new entrance canopies and porch spaces to make coming and going from the campus easier for residents and to better connect facilities with the outdoors.

Rennes Health & Rehab Center- East was chosen as one of the sites for filming an Independent Feature Film entitled “Aquarians”, written and directed by Marinette native Michael M. McGuire.
Cast and crew from Los Angeles and Wisconsin arrived at Rennes on Jan. 12th and filmed from 7:00am until after sundown. Some of the residents and staff were able to take part in a few background scenes and became actors and actresses for the day. This was an exciting day for all of the residents and staff, and a memory that will never be forgotten!
