Is this just about former staff feeling bitter after their termination?

A:

All fired staff have already found jobs and are serving patients elsewhere. They are taking action out of deep concern for the effect that these closures will have on the community they served, and not out of self-interest. Some staff members who have spoken out are not among those who were fired and remain at Franklin Square Medical Center.

“I'm not doing this to complain about my job. With this particular mistake, I truly believe that we’re going to have very bad outcomes. It’s very, very concerning for these kids.” 
-Dr. Anna Reed, former pediatrician at Franklin Square
