Wudel and coauthors hypothesized that racial disparity in outcomes for patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) would persist despite similar objective measures of treatment. They retrospectively examined a 10-year cohort of patients treated at a city hospital and a university hospital, both located in the same city. Overall and disease-free survival for patients with CRC treated at a quaternary-care university hospital were compared with those obtained from a primary point-of-access city hospital.
