In the text I'm working on at the moment a U.O. di Neurologia has cropped up. In my experience it's usually a unit/department that's part of a wider medical research institute or within a hospital.

Sorry Lizzy - only just seen your note - have been working flat out all day.
I'd probably be inclined to use U.O. [Unità Operativa] the first time and maybe add an English explanation - it would be helpful if they hadn't left those bits out! - as it's the name of a department.
