About This Provider

Benjamin Cady, MD, is with Springfield Clinic’s Family Medicine Department seeing patients at Springfield Clinic Hillsboro West Building. He joined Springfield Clinic in 2012.

Dr. Cady earned his medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield. He completed both a family medicine residency and a family medicine/OB fellowship at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City.

“Having a family medicine physician for a father is definitely what encouraged me to become a doctor of my own,” he shared.

Dr. Cady followed in his dad’s footsteps, and they worked side by side at Springfield Clinic Hillsboro until his dad’s retirement.

“I enjoy the variety of care I get to provide, from delivering babies all the way through the entire lifecycle, and I am blessed to provide that care in my hometown” says Dr. Cady.

Dr. Cady’s scope of practice includes obstetrics care all the way through senior care. His focus is on helping the patients answer the questions they have about their health care needs and serving them where they are at.

In his free time, he enjoys playing golf, participating in musical theater and spending time with family and friends.
