Almost any clinics you have in your neighbourhood will do. As long as the doctor is registered with SMC.

Doctor not registered with SMC can't practice in Singapore ;)

Just saying.

Back to OP, if you go to the likes of Raffles, X ray etc will be in house. Same for the one in Amara hotel shopping centre.

Others, you need to go to different places for x ray.

Btw, I don't remember.

What medical checks you need to do?

Agreed with ecureilx. Go to somewhere with x-Ray in house or nearby.

Should be blood test for HIV and x-ray for TB.

He would need to test for Chest-XRay (TB) and HIV (Blood). There will also be some basic tests like vision, etc

He can also go to small clinics with have the X-Ray attached so that he would not need to visit multiple places.

Rather if he goes to Raffles Clinic, he will have options to chose same day report for an additional fee or via the normal route (2-3 days).

In any case, small clinics will be much cheaper, around 55-60$ for the entire tests.

Have a question, what if you are diagnosed with HIV positive? Will they not grant your PR?
