LOS ANGELES (AP) — A health clinic that catered to porn stars in the San Fernando Valley has closed in the wake of two years of controversy.

Porn industry trade association spokeswoman Diane Duke says the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation is now shuttered.

Her group is brainstorming solutions to continue providing STD screenings and care for performers.

The clinic faced criticism from state and local health officials for failing to cooperate with an investigation into a porn actor’s HIV diagnosis there last year. The clinic’s license was also deemed inadequate by the state.

Last month, the clinic was accused of medical privacy violations after patient information appeared on a website.
