About 85 percent of U.S. cancer patients get treated at a community hospital, where they see an oncologist who treats many different types of cancers. These generalists are typically not up on the latest tests and treatments. The hospitals who employ them don’t expect them to go through the time and expense of figuring it out. While highly regarded cancer centers place as many as quarter of their patients on newer precision drugs, the percentage at most community hospitals is nearly zero.
