WellSpan Wound Care Center

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

Our centers use a multi-disciplinary, team approach in treating our patients to ensure that all of their wound care needs are met. This involves professional care from general surgeons, vascular surgeons, podiatrists, infectious disease physicians, certified wound care specialists, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and nurses.
