distinct part
Unidad/ Unidad autónoma

No creo que haya una término que recoja la noción de una unidad dentro de un hospital con las características descriptas, pero esta es mi sugerencia.
"The term “distinct part” refers to a portion of an institution or institutional complex (e.g., a nursing home or a hospital) that is certified to provide SNF and/or NF services."
SNF se traduce habitualmente como "centro de enfermería especializada". En este caso podrías decir "Unidada Autónoma de Servicios de Enfermería Especializada".
