What excites you about your residency/fellowship at Corewell Health? I am looking forward to focusing more in depth on the heart and how to care for children with congenital heart defects and acquired cardiac issues while still thinking about each child holistically.

Clinical Interests: I am interested in everything, but the aspects of pediatric cardiology that excite me most are congenital heart defects and fetal echocardiography.

Hobbies: I love to ski and be outside hiking or at the lake! I have two dogs, Stevie and Bodie, who are always down for adventures. I also love live music, trying new foods and restaurants and reading.

Class of 2024

Jason Hernandez
Jason E. Hernandez, MD

Hometown: New York, New York

Medical school: Ross University School of Medicine

Why did you choose Spectrum Health for your residency/fellowship? I knew I wanted to be a pediatric cardiologist since my intern year. I'm fascinated with the physiology of the heart and enjoy the challenges of managing complex cardiac pathology. I knew Spectrum Health was where I wanted to train because of the excellent faculty and broad exposure I would have as a fellow.

What are your clinical interests? I'm interested in interventional cardiology as well as cardiac intensive care.

Hobbies: When I'm not in the hospital, you can find me trying out a new restaurant or traveling. I love to go biking and just spending time with my wife and our tuxedo cat named Peppercorn. We also are huge Disney fans!

Alexandra Menillo, DO
Alexandra Menillo, DO

Hometown: Monvtille, NJ

Medical school: Kansas City University

Why did you choose Spectrum Health for your residency/fellowship? Helen DeVos Children's Hospital is a large children's hospital with all the bells and whistles that still has a community feel. After completing my undergraduate collegiate career at a BIG10 university, it was important for me to further pursue my training at a hospital that has strong ties to the research and academia of a BIG10 university system. Additionally, I like how the department has a separate cardiac intensive care unit which will allow for me to be extremely involved in the critical care of our patients. I am looking forward to learning from a group of internationally-trained faculty.

What are your clinical interests? I am interested in cardiac catheterization and critical care.

Hobbies: I do yoga, pilates and spin. I also love watching all sports, especially the New York Yankees.
