With this current round of funding, PayGround will continue to grow as a recognized and trusted partner for providers and patients — modernizing the way healthcare payments are made in the US.,” said Andrew Wegrzyn, Principal at SixThirty. “PayGround continues to enhance the patient and provider relationship, ensuring that advanced financial technology benefits patients and providers alike.”
