Is it:

solace

My prefix heats

Sol means Sun. solace.

My infix greets

ola is hello in Portuguese. solace

My suffix is elite

ace is the best. solace

The wounded, I treat

solace means comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness. Wounded are in distress.

The Hint:

All my affixes are of the same length.

sol & ace are 3 letters. (so is ola, but that's not technically an affix)

    $\begingroup$ Isn't the Spanish word written with a (silent) h, though? $\endgroup$ – Jafe Mar 13 '20 at 9:01

    $\begingroup$ Technically, the other parts aren't affixes either (the solution word doesn't actually consist of those parts added to one another, it's just a wordplayful coincidence), but we like to honour the genre starter by using those terms anyway. $\endgroup$ – Bass Mar 13 '20 at 9:01

    $\begingroup$ @jafe my bad, 'Ola' is Portuguese, not Spanish (and your right, hola is Spanish). google.com/search?q=ola $\endgroup$ – Christopher Theodore Mar 13 '20 at 9:12
