SOLUTION?: Sue Sweeney - who has previously worked to improve maternity services in regional Victoria through the Department of Health and Human Services - has been appointed Portland District Health's temporary maternity coordinator.

An embattled Portland hospital has a new maternity coordinator five months after its birthing services were abruptly paused, forcing one woman to give birth on the side of the road.
