C1L6: Center for Disease Management
C1L6: Center for Disease Management is the sixth level in the game Blood II: The Chosen (map name: 05_cdm). It resembles medical or science facility for experimentation. There are several cages and rooms where Cabalco scientists are experimenting on Soul Drudges. This was the level used for the demo version of Blood II.

Caleb rides the storage elevator up to the Center for Disease Management's supply room, encountering several Fanatics. To proceed, he must travel through a conveyor belt, but a spinning buzz saw impedes his progress. He finds the way to turn it off, then travels through the facility, moving through the morgue on a floating platform, through offices and equipment rooms, until he comes to an elevator.
- Upon entering the facility, Caleb states that "It's howdy doody time kiddies, the bad man is here!". This is taken from The Shining.
- When riding on a lift, Caleb comments "I feel like a piece of meat" - a reference to Tales from the Crypt.
