Los Angeles based hospital Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a haven for celebrity treatment, has settled their lawsuit with the fraternal twins of Dennis Quaid--Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace.

The kids were given an accidental dose of heparin (1000 times the normal dosage for newborns) shortly after their delivery of November 2008. After an initial scare, the twins stabilized.

Each child will receive $250,000, while their parents Quaid and wife Kimberly Buffington were awarded $750k in damages last year.
