    I think the Hospital A will have a higher report of being more male births, because a large sample will have more normal distribution than smaller sample. i.e., smaller sample would have more possibility of having skewed data.
    It's not about normality or skew, it is about the standard error
    of the sample proportion.

    With kind regards
