The WellSpan Wound Care Center at Chambersburg Hospital specializes in treating complicated, chronic wounds that are difficult to heal.

This involves professional care from general surgeons, vascular surgeons, podiatrists, infectious disease physicians, certified wound care specialists, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and nurses.
