U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suffered a broken elbow when she fell on her way to the White House on Wednesday.

A statement released by her chief of staff said Clinton was treated at The George Washington University Hospital and then sent home. She's scheduled to have surgery to repair her elbow in the coming week, the Associated Press reported.

"Secretary Clinton appreciates the professionalism and kindness she received from the medical team who treated her this evening and looks forward to resuming her full schedule soon," Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills said in the statement.

Clinton had planned to attend an event Thursday morning to mark World Refugee Day, but that appearance has been removed from her public schedule, the AP reported.
