I would go along with Louise's (Dauphine's) answer for the first term, "hospital service". However, with regard to the second term, if your context is UK, then such departments of hospitals are much more commnly referred to (nowadays) in one of the above ways. In the past, such department/units were referred to as "Casualty" although this term would now appear to apply for less serious injury. See the following for confirmation.
That said, passing refernce is made to "department" once the term AEU has been applied and "depratment" is used in one case, altho' the websearch showed this to be used less often in the UK. All depends who your aduience is :

ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT
The Department provides a full 24 hour service. All soft tissue and bony trauma that does not require inpatient care is dealt with in the department as well as minor head injuries which need admission for 24 hour observation. All Orthpaedic trauma requiring inpatient care, including fractured neck of femur, is dealt with at Poole General Hospital.

Outside these hours patients will be seen but GPs/patients are asked to telephone the Hospital first so that the patient is expected.
