I'd be inclined to start with:
IA (No Wounding -50%; Wounding (Undead Only -20%) +40%)
Healing (Follow-Up, IA, +0%; Faith Healing +20%)
Alter the "Undead Only" to reflect how common they are compared to other foes, of course. Faith Healing should cover not healing undead.

AlexanderHowl's notion of a feature on the Undead's end works if it's a setting design level decision, but if it's just this one ability--or some selection of them--it won't.
