Bosses at the Ucla Medical Center in Los Angeles have agreed to pay over $860,000 (£538,000) as part of a settlement with federal regulators over a celebrity snooping scandal.
Ucla Health System officials have accepted hospital employees broke the law and reviewed the medical records of two celebrity patients without authorisation.
The identities of the stars have not been revealed but the complaints cover a period between 2005 and 2009, when hospital employees were repeatedly caught and fired for rifling through the medical files of celebrities like Britney Spears and the late Farrah Fawcett.
The security breaches were exposed by the Los Angeles Times in 2008.
The violations led state lawmakers to pass new legislation imposing harsh fines on hospitals for patient privacy complaints.
Ucla Medical Center bosses were fined $95,000 (£59,000) in connection with 2009 privacy breaches that reportedly involved the medical records of Michael Jackson.
