THE next time a life is saved at Coffs Harbour Health Campus, there's a good chance it's because of a group of women who don't have a medical degree between them.

The hospital's hottest unsung heroes - its Pink Ladies - yesterday unveiled 13 new electronic monitors for the theatre department, after raising almost $160,000 during the year.

The Pink Ladies, or the United Hospital's Auxiliary as the group is officially known, proudly stood beside their new donations which monitor a patient's vital signs when they come out of recovery.

The money raised was the highest amount of any Pink Ladies branch in country NSW.

In fact, the group has raised more than $1 million for the Coffs Harbour Health Campus during the past 10 years.

The money is the profit from the coffee and gift shops they run at the hospital.

Coffs Harbour's Pink Ladies president Helen Mears said the group was proud of its achievements.

"We work toward the care and comfort of our patients ... that's our goal."
