The Coastguard and the ambulance service were called to the river in Woodbridge around 11.50am Wednesday, after receiving reports a woman was injured on the river's east bank.
Coastguard teams from Felixstowe and Shingle Street attended the scene, alongside the agency's search and rescue helicopter from Lydd in Kent.
A spokeswoman for the Coastguard said the woman was winched by the helicopter and transferred to Ipswich Hospital for further care.
The extent of her injuries have not been confirmed.
